    My DH took me for a ride this morning that ended up at a quilt shop I never visited before about 70 miles away. He said to pick out 12 FQs and that will be your roses. I couldn't believe it! I guess you know He's getting special treatment for that!! Much better than roses that would just wilt in time. He is difinately a 'keeper'! :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Oh, he did good. Much better than roses. The FQs will live forever in a quilt.

    What a wonderful gift! He not only knows what you like, found a quilt shop so you could have the pleasure of looking and took you instead of giving you a gift certificate... Which means he knew he'd have to wait while you shopped, a gift in itself. The best valentine's gift I've heard about!

    Hijack: Hi, Karla! Enjoy your week off. Hope you get lots of time to do whatever you want to do, and don't have too much you HAVE to do that'll take time from the things you enjoy.

    Bev, Kara,....not alone. My hubby has never celebrated Valentines Day. As a kid they were too poor (5 children) to buy cards to exchange at school, so it's just another day to him.
    Helped grandbaby make him a card and he told me he would have bought me one but thought v. day was on a Sunday.
    I told him that was alright. What else am I gonna tell a man that just let me order a new sewing machine?:D
    hugs to you both, and a belated Happy Valentines Day! :)

    He is definetly a keeper!!! You did tell him that lots of women on here are quite a bit jealous :mrgreen:

    I was lucky to get a card....mine did keep asking me if I wanted chocolate...(just b/c he wanted to buy some and then eat it :roll: ..he knows I always share...well...except that 1 time I stabbed him with a fork when he tried to snitch a bite of my cake.. :roll: :oops: )

    i got so busy replying that I forgot to congratulate you on your fat quarters!!! I know it's kind of hard for men to figure out what would mean something to a woman, but your hubby certainly took the time and effort to figure it out. Yes, I would say special treatment is deserved. :D

    Hello Janstar -

    he definitely deserves the "Quilter's Hero" tee shirt -- have you seen it? I got one for my husband Jack several years ago in Lancaster PA as a TY for his patience going to quilt shops and, when his mobility was better, big shows and actually showing interest in what he was seeing! Your husband deserves one from all of us readers! Did you know about the quilt shop and mention it, or did he even find that on his own? As someone said before me, he's a keeper.

    I got pink roses for V- day but since my b-day was this next week my DH but me a quilt book called " Link back to the 30's". I can't wait to try out some of the 1930's patterns in it, since I like heirloom quilts. That is some b-day gift, I wouldn't trade my DH for nothing. But have to wait till the book comes in the mail. DH ordered it online, which he never does!
